Subject: Fun Frivolities for Fabulous Freaks
2nd Set: Who's not enthusiastic when we take a trip to "China?" It's a rollicking good time, and there was some hands in the air by the time 5:50-6:20 rolls around. "Rider" is a tad more subdued, but it only raises our yearning to be blown away by Bobby and Jerry's verses. And we are, more by the collective energy than their respective voices. The festivities continue with Bobby's civics gender lesson, "Man Smart." Terrapin is beatific, and grows more vitrolic the deeper we head into those waters. The end of "Drums" pierces your lungs, and heads right for the vulnerability of your soul. Space is mostly loud and nasty leading to a ferocious, if waaay too short "OO." A well-intentioned and strong Jerry leads a fetally Hammond "Fantasy." We quickly segue to the "Wharf." It's pretty good, but the members have checked out of making a personal connection with the audience. Bobby does a credible job of driving the frenzy of a compact "Lovelight."
The drunken party should extend far into the night as signified by a deterministic "Quinn."
A far better representative of the positive qualities of an '87 show. 3 1/2 stars.
Subject: take a chance
the quality of the recording is pretty good!
it's got a nice list!
and they play their hearts out!
really bangin' show!
sometimes in the quest to get only the best sound quality you end up looking over some good shit just because it's an aud.
i'd still really dig a sbd. or healy mix though.
a 4 because it's an aud. performance gets a 6
and bobby gets a 10
this was the FIRST REVIEW.
